New guy from SW Florida

I'm 68 and semi-retired. I got hooked on audio when I was a kid. My Pop's Fisher console with a mono corner speaker was the gateway drug. Got into tubes 25 or so years ago. My first real speakers were 1977 Klipsch Heresy's that I bought after college. I traded them in for La Scalas a year later and kept them for 23 years. In 1993 I bought a Cary SLI 30, an EL84 integrated. I called Cary with a question and Kirk Owen answered the phone. He asked me what speakers I had. I told him La Scalas and he said I should get the 300B SE. So I did. There was a glass chip inside one of the Cetron 300B's. I called Cary and Dennis Had answered the phone. I explained the issue and he said the chip was on no consequence and offer to send another tube. I declined.

Presently, I have Dennis's retirement Inspire amps, a triode strapped single ended pentode, a 45/2A3 and his LP27a preamp with B stock Klipsch Heresy IV's.
I gave up vinyl for streaming and audio is fun again.

P.S. I still like to mess around with vintage drivers.

Welcome to HFH. Sit down and pull up a chair and your favorite beverage. I spent 25 years in Miami. Boy those Cuban girls were hot!

Welcome bud! Me thinks you’ll fit right in. Lots of bottle heads here to chat with. Look forward to hearing more about your system and audio journey!
